Now is the time…
Now is the time to do some soul searching about why so many people believe the lies that were perpetrated by Trump & his allies and continue to be believed by such a large group of Americans. Why are so many people unable to see the difference between falsehoods and facts? I believe we need to look at how we educate our young people. It seems odd that in a Democracy that we supposedly value so much our schools do not prioritize civics education or critical thinking. Plus, American history is taught differently depending on where you’re from. Some kids learn the truth about slavery and Jim Crow and others get a “white washed” version. Its no wonder we have a massive division, there’s no unity in how we see our own history! We must teach American youth how to responsibly participate in a our democracy.
